What is Charter for Compassion
Charter for Compassion Pakistan (CfC) was launched in February 2011 as a local initiative inspired by the Charter for Compassion, a global program by a multi-faith, multi national council of thinkers and leaders led by Karen Armstrong, a celebrated author. The Charter for Compassion movement has been endorsed by international and Pakistani celebrities like Sir Richard Branson, Oprah Winfrey, Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan, The Dalai Lama, Abdul Sattar Edhi, Salman Ahmad and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy among others.Charter for Compassion Pakistan (CfC) aims to create a vibrant, peaceful and compassionate society in Pakistan. It is a cooperative effort to restore not only compassionate thinking but, more importantly, compassionate action in our daily lives. We believe that by making our society compassionate we can solve most of our socio-economic problems that we face in the country, over a period of time. This is being accomplished through the creation of innovative programs on compassion in academia, business and media. CfC Pakistan is also collaborating internationally with organizations like The Centre for Compassion and Altruistic Research (CCARE) at Stanford University and the International Working Group of Compassionate Organizations (IWGCO) to develop its initiatives in Pakistan.
